Department of Linguistics

Evelyn Fernandez-Lizarraga is a doctoral student in the Department of Linguistics. She received her BA from Dartmouth College in Linguistics and Comparative Literature and her MA in Hispanic Linguistics from the University of New Mexico. Her research focuses on language ideologies and variation along the US-Mexico Border in Spanish and English, primarily in how transfronterizo students (students who live in Mexico but attend school in the US) construct their linguistic identity. Her research interests extend more broadly to popular representations of bilingualism on television, particularly the social meaning of English in Spanish-language telenovelas. Finally, through the Voices of California project at Stanford, she is currently studying linguistic variation among Latinx speakers throughout California.
